I'd like to introduce you to my brother-in-law, Jurgen Beck today. You might remember that we've prayed for his wife, Shawn, (my husband's sister) as she has walked through breast cancer this year. Praise God, Shawn is doing great these days. Pour yorself a cup of your favorite beverage (I'll have coffee with french vanilla creamer) and enjoy getting to know this talented guy. You'll see why I'm excited to share him with you.
Jurgen, a German-born Texan, created the incredible music score for the new movie, Standing Firm. Have you heard about it? It has just been released on DVD. It's a story that tackles some tough questions, like "if God really loves me...then why do I suffer?"
Here is the official trailer.
I'd love to see people everywhere have a chance to see this and share it with their friends and family. It is awesome to find movies with a hope-filled Christian message that are well done, AND available to people who might be searching for answers to the questions on their hearts. You can find it at Amazon.com, Christian retailers and even Netflix!
We can really help spread the word about Standing Firm through our social networks. You can even put nifty banners like this one on your blog! Look, it changes:
Now, I got a little bit sidetracked talking about the movie, when what I really want to do is give you a "behind the scenes" look at what it takes to create a movie score. For that, head on over to Priscilla Shirer's blog, at Going Beyond (click on "blog" if you land on the home page). I promise it will be well-worth the visit! By the way, you can sample his music right here on my blog...check out the bottom playlist in the right sidebar. Great stuff!
